As it has been just another normal working month this month, I have decided to write a feature on our fantastic office girls. As being the first point of contact and job co-ordinators, as well as everything else they do, the company would not function without them!
Office Manager – Michelle
Michelle has worked for EGS nearly 11 years now, first starting in September 2002, she joined the company as an office administrator. She then quickly went on to looking after the company accounts and becoming office manager. Michelle is now working alongside our workshop manger Barry, managing all Governor related jobs.
Michelle is extremely sporty as she is a keen football enthusiast and is a member of a ladies football team, she also plays in a netball summer league, and is currently training for a half marathon in preparation for charity event ‘Run to the Beat’.
Accounts Manager – Jess
Jess is the newest addition to our office team and has easily fitted in with the girls and her working role. She has a substantial financial background and gained numerous accounting qualifications as she has been attending courses for just over 10 years!
Over the past few years Jess has enjoyed travelling, especially spending 5 months exploring countries in Asia. Now she is ready to settle down as exciting times come ahead for her as being newly engaged and buying her first home.
Spares Coordinator – Sarah
Sarah originally joined EGS in 2009 on a temporary contract to cover maternity leave. Coming straight from college this was her first real full time job and since then she has never looked back. Sarah plays an important role in the office as she looks after all incoming spares jobs and works alongside our spares director Wayne.
Sarah is a keen cyclist and just participated in a 50 mile charity bike ride around Colchester, she completed the course in 3 hours 30 minutes and raised money for St Helena Hospices new radio therapy unit.
Stock Controller/Administrator – Jacqueline
Jacqueline has been with EGS for 7 years now , coming straight from College this was her first full time job, she joined as an office administrator and quickly learned the ropes. Along the way Jacqueline picked up more responsibilities which led onto her becoming part of the Governor department, helping to co-ordinate all Governor jobs. Now since having her son last year Jacqueline works on a part time basis, looking after our stock levels and general administration.
Jacqueline’s spare time is completely occupied by looking after her little son Jack who is 15 months old.
Quality Control Officer – Marie
My official title is Quality Control Officer but my work responsibilities go further than that. I started with the company in March 2003 as an office administrator, I then took charge of looking after the health and safety as well as all spares jobs. In 2009 I took 10 months out for maternity leave then returned back on a part time basis before leaving again on maternity leave in 2011 to have my second daughter. I am now back part time looking after health and safety, quality control and the added responsibility of marketing. This involves looking after our website and all other social media pages, plus much more. I am really enjoying this new challenge.
All my spare time is taken up looking after my two beautiful girls aged 2 and 3 years, they definitely keep me busy!
A quote from our Director – Wayne Ward
“All the office girls do a fantastic job, they are always so enthusiastic about their work and do a really great job, we couldn’t ask for better”
